JAMES SQUIRE JACK OF SPADES PORTER
While the uninitiated might guess that, in the words of one brewer, dark ales “taste like an oil slick”, James Squire Jack of Spades Porter is just one ale of many that proves the opposite is true. With a more delicate complexity than other dark ales, its rich dark colour entices, along with a coffee and chocolate aroma and pillowy head.
Roasted barley and wheat malts are key in this expertly crafted blend, along with subtle hopping and a long maturation process that bring the flavours to life. An example of a fine Australian porter, this is one you will appreciate during the colder winter months paired with hearty fare like roast beef or steak, and a rich chocolate mud cake with double cream and raspberries for dessert.
